      I had to Google this Steve Cohen because an earlier list I saw didn’t list his business.

      First result for that name was the Congressman from TN-9, a Democrat. An unlikely pick.
      Second result was some hedge fund guy that’s worth $8 billion. Getting warmer!
      Third result was some guy who bills himself as “The Millionaire’s Magician.” Oh, that would be fun…

      Then, yeah, some news article says he’s the token small business owner who will get up there for 3 minutes and rant on how regulations and China are killing jobs. Givn the time allotted, I’m not expecting much substance.

          Look at those ads to the right… And those to the left…

          Besides, as I’ve already said, too many of you fine people think you’re infallible and this is our small gesture in proving you’re not. (fake smile emoticon so you think I’m kidding when i’m really not)
